My first ever coverage of an international sport event, thank you Bhas for giving me this opportunity.
I reached the stadium about 1 hour before the match and the crowd was amazing, cheering and shouting in support of their team . The stadium was painted red, everyone was in red. The supporters from China outnumbered the Singaporean supporters, which was interesting as China was already out of the running to qualify for the World Cup but their supporters still came out full force to support them so did their journalist. They were using the wi-fi to get the photos up on the net instantaneously as the match was going on. When the game started, China’s dominance was obvious and overwhelming. Many Singaporean passes were intercepted by China and their defense was strong. They had many chances at goal and in the end the score was 4-0.
Sad day for Singaporean soccer, but I felt they fought well. Kudos Lions!
